Front foot traction and the use of full deck grip rather than wax, is a simple solution to a lot of things. From front foot and back foot denting, to never ever waxing your board again. No maintenance required. No more melting wax in the sun going all over your car, the inside of your board bag or wherever. No more your wax is too hard in cold water conditions. No more waxing and de-waxing for different water temperatures or trips. Apart from being lighter, grippier, easier, it saves you a lot of time, just grab your board and go...
New EVA foam formulas now allow for no wax being used in all temperatures. The resurgence of front foot pads is now very popular among surfing, kite surfing, wave pool surfing, skimboard, SUP, foil board, skim boarding, river surfing, wake surfing, long boarding, big wave surfing guns, step off boards.

You often hear people, who have become trapped in their conceptual prisons of the mind, asking through basic dillusion.. (and the majority of which have never even tried a full deck grip set up before, but just go on hear say of others who probably haven't tried one before)
"What about rashes in warm water or board shorts?"
There is no rash in just board shorts with the unique Lunasurf foam formula, you will get more rash with wax.

Some more views riding Lunasurf deck grip, front pad with a mid piece accompanying a tail pad. The mid piece is a favourite of people who move up the board to ride the barrel, you can see its use very clearly here in this tail camera GoPro POV surf film. It is also great for high performance surfing and small wave surfing where you may move up the board more to generate speed or are landing further up the board doing aerial manoeuvres.
No more troubles of your wax is too hard to go on, lacks traction in winter, is the wrong temperature or did you actually pack the surf wax? Batty brushing off the snow on a -19 degree air winters day ready to paddle out.
